OAK ISLAND, NC (WWAY) — Friday, we told you about MTV’s “Teen Mom 2” star Jenelle Evans and a video of the tabloid star fighting another Brunswick County teen. Over the weekend Jenelle, the girl she fought and the girl seen pushing Jenelle into the fight in the video landed in jail.

This time, though, Jenelle’s lawyer says he thinks she was set up.

After the video of Jenelle fighting Oak Island resident Britany Truett hit the Internet last week, charges quickly followed. Oak Island Police arrested Jenelle Sunday around 9 p.m. on warrants for assault and simple affray.

The police report says when the officer arrested Jenelle, the 19-year-old had consumed drugs or alcohol, although it does not specify what substance she had used or how much. Police took her to the Brunswick County Jail, where she was released on a $500 secured bond.

Police arrested the other girl in the fight, Truett, Saturday for simple affray. She was also released on a $500 bond.

When we tried to contact Truett, we were told we needed to contact Splash Media in Los Angeles, which would organize all of Truett’s interviews. The organization is also responsible for the video of the fight and pictures of Truett afterward online.

Jenelle’s lawyer Dustin Sullivan of Bolivia told us he is not convinced the fight was simply caught on tape.

“We’re trying to do a little investigating to see if any of the parties involved in the altercation were in fact paid for getting this set up,” Sullivan said.

Sullivan says some media outlets know of reality show drama before it happens, which makes him question the nature of the altercations.

“We’ve received some information that one of the individuals was in fact paid a considerable amount of money, and it had nothing to do with Miss Evans, so that leads me to believe that there’s a lot more to this than just a simple altercation that was between two females,” Sullivan said.

Sullivan says he has not spoken to Jenelle about the arrest yet.

When we went by the home listed on the arrest report where Jenelle was arrested, the home owners told us they’ve received more attention than they ever expected to get by helping a friend. They told us Jenelle was not there, but her car was parked outside.

Jenelle’s friends told us Jenelle does not know who she can trust anymore because so many people are selling her out for fame and fortune.

The folks at Splash Media told us Brittany Truett will be on Good Morning America tomorrow morning. Producers at the show confirmed to us they are trying to book her, but nothing has been finalized.

Also arrested was Brittany Maggard, who allegedly pushed Jenelle into the fight.

Jenelle’s legal troubles also mean more trouble for her on-again, off-again boyfriend. Oak Island Police say when they picked up the teen mom last night, she was with Kieffer Delp. He had an outstanding warrant for cocaine possession.

The arrest report says he had consumed either drugs or alcohol when he was arrested.

Delp is still in jail under $5,000 bond.

    I think we should keep teen mom and 16 and pregnant going, however i do believe the show that is interviewing brittany and all that should be fined! People need to get off janelles case, she isnt dragging around jace when shes going out shes keeping him this someone she trusts which is alot better than takin him. And she tries to do stuff for her son..do u guys even watch the show? Her mom wont let her! Her mom nags her about everything..the girls in school and trying to work shes doing better than alot of people shes just on tv while others arent. I think the only thing is she needs to get rid of kieffer! Hes no good! And the fight was def. Fixed and i guarantee kieffer was in on it just the same..come on janelle u were mad he did coke behind ur back and he jus did it again..dnt keep him in ur life to have that around ur son!

    I think we should not only get rid of this kind of “reality” show, but the producers of this one should be charged with aiding in the delinquency of a minor. How low are we as a society going to stoop in the name of entertainment???

    My suggestion is not going to sit well with many of you but here goes:

    (1) get rid of the realty show. It serves no purpose other than letting the crazies crawl out from under the rocks and showing themselves for what they are
    (2) this poor girl needs help now. Stop watching her and contributing to her stupidity by giving her the publicity she craves
    (3) don’t report these things as news. It is not news. It is sensationalism at its finest. People are going to do anything and everything stupid to get their 15 seconds of fame
    (4) commit her before she hurts or kills herself or someone else. She is a loose cannon just waiting to be shot off. She is getting paid for what she does and nothing seems off limits.

    I am not from the Wilmington area I live about 45 mins from Charlotte but I need to say this, I do watch the show and I have seen about enough and heard enough about Janelle. I was 16 when I had my son, and the day he was born he became my 1st priority! She does not deserve her child back until she can act like a mother, adult, and a lady! Ladies and mothers DO NOT behave like that I don’t care if it was a set up. She could have been the bigger person and walked away. I agree with the other comments local news channels should be more concerned w/ local and world news, not another strung out teenager who can’t take care of herself let alone her child. The girl needs to grow up, if she was adult enough to lay down and make a baby then she is adult enough to take care of it.
